    hey craig, don't forget to add all the holo basic energies that were handed out at league last year. Thanks for the update.

    Also, just a note. The latest Pokemon Reversal has made this card absolutely worthless! To bad too. With Double Gust gone, benched Pokemon are very safe (except to the new Feint Attacks maybe).

    I thought the only promos allowed were the Nintendo ones numbered 001 and on?

    Promo #53 has the same attacks, et. al. as the Suicune in Aquapolis.

    I think we should qualify that this is US only and that in the UK for the immediate future we will allow all Best Promo's and outlaw all Nintendo Promos on grounds of inability to get the cards easily.

    OP it is just for US at the moment...

    sigh... Too bad Rapidash (promo 51) and Ho-oh (Promo 52) weren't allowed even though they're in e-format. They would have been some good cards for Eon. But it is nice to hear that POP allows the old copies of the re-released cards. I have a bunch of the old cards (dont we all?), and it is nice to hear that they dont have to be collecting dust in my closet.

    Now, I was annoyed about the Rapidash seeing how I actually had it AND it was a Nintendo Power promo. The Ho-oh, I could live without though. :)

    Hey Mysterious, I have a question about teh Neo Genesis/Expedition lists. In the Expedition list, you said that all cards are allowed, one of which I am looking for, which was Power Charge. Isnt Neo Genesis's Energy Charge the same card? If yes, wouldn't that card be allowed into Eon as well?

    While it does the same effect, it is a different card because of the title. A TO might allow you to play Energy Charge AS Power Charge, but technically, Energy Charge isn't allowed in EON.

    As far as I can see, it would then be a proxy card, which aren't allowed in tournaments (officially).

    Any chance we can get this as a sticky topic I think the list is very helpful and something we don't want to get lost in the clutter and this awful hallo weiner scheme :p

    Mods mods now where is a mod when you want one ... Just like Policemen only there when you fracture a speed limit or two and never there when the axe wieding nutter is in the back.

    ;)

    Hi everyone! :)

    Thank you for the list.
    It is very helpful for a newcomer to the Pokemon trading card game like me! :) ;)

    As you may notice, I have updated this list for EX: Dragons. One popular Poke-tool is back, it's Balloon Berry (from Neo Revelation).

    Arthas Zero: Power Charge and Energy Charge are two different cards.

    Power Charge requires you to return two Energy cards from your discard pile to your deck.

    Energy Charge requires you to return up to two Energy cards from your discard pile to your deck.

    While this may seem trivial, it is in fact a major difference when it comes to someone playing a deck in which they are very happy to leave an Energy card in their discard pile. Think about it, they've just whacked your Sneasel Ex with a Lightning and Darkness Energy attached, you replace it with a Sandstorm Pichu, flip heads with your Power charge and suddenly its attack is useless to you, with Energy Charge, you could have left the Lightning energy lying. And that's what makes the difference between Energy and Power Charge.

    Thank you mysterioustrainer. This list is even more help to someone like myself who is making his way back into the game after leaving just before Rocket came out. Sorry to see my old haymaker go on the shelf, no more first turn wins for me. But I guess I'll survive.

    Thanks again.

    This is a great resource.
